Learning how to use your new Roland (Boss) DR-880 has never been easier thanks to the official Roland DVD Owner's Manual!

The DR-880 is a rhythm-programming powerhouse that’s loaded with world-class drum, percussion, and bass sounds from Roland’s famous SRX library. It also includes a stunning collection of original waveforms. You can get microscopic with the DR-880, but you also have the option of taking the simple route with its three EZ Compose buttons, which allow original patterns to be constructed without note-by-note programming hassles. Patterns can be taken deeper with the Groove Modify feature, where various groove and triplet feels can be applied. Ghost notes and fills can also be added automatically. Guitar and bass players can join the action by plugging directly to the DR-880’s Guitar/Bass Input jack, and playing through the built-in COSM® Drive/Amp models and multi-effects.

Take your DR-880 skills to the next level and pick up the official Roland DVD Tutorial today!

Amazing Training DVD!

I teach instructional design, so am sensitive to the nature of good online or media-based training materials. This DVD is one of the most effective tutorials I have ever seen. It arrived on the same day as the Boss DR-800 and I'm very grateful it did. While the DR-800 manual is very good, going through the DVD first was very helpful -- it totally demystified the nature of the device and instilled enthusiasm for using it. The gentleman providing the instruction is fantastic. He is clear, personable and articulate. He has a real talent for knowing when to elaborate. Every time I was unclear on a particular point, it was like he anticipated it and, in the next 10 seconds, addressed that point. He also communicated his genuine appreciate for how cool a tool the DR-800 is.

Very helpful

The DR-880 is a powerful machine and requires a learning curve. If you start out just using the build-in patterns, the more you use it, the more features you will want to use. The video definately helps getting started.

Must Have Tutorial on DVD

This DVD tutorial came a few days before my Boss DR-880 arrived so I took full advantage of the time to prepare. This is an excellent tutorial. Period... Even without having the Machine in front of me I was able to follow the instruction very closely and understood the training fully. The instruction is thorough and interesting. The instructor actually adds some life to the training (what could have been a boring and head-banging overload). He did a great job keeping me on track and interested throughout. I know I will be reviewing this DVD tutorial time and again until I've got this thing mastered. Great DVD, great price, and a can not do without, resource. Trying to learn this machine with just the owner user manual would be utterly exhausting. Thanks again to Amazon for providing another great product.
